So, I ordered two (popped my w.w cherry) but I have no idea what to do with them. I'm not the biggest wine drinker, as Bud Light is my staple alcoholic beverage of choice. I'm looking to save a case and maybe some of the one that I open up for a later date and I have a few questions due to the fact that this is the first wine I've ever really bought for myself to try to enjoy. PM's and links would be much appreciated as well if anyone knows of good sites to go to to try to progress from being a wine "noob".

1. I plan to store both cases in my closet - I am assuming that storing these in whatever packaging they came in will be the best way to store them to keep temperatures/light levels constant (no cooler/cellar yet because I'm in a small student apartment)? Temperature is relatively constant and they will not have direct light unless I'm getting clothes out in the middle of the night, which is rare.

2. How long should I store the case I do not plan on opening for a long time before having to worry about them going bad (or whatever wines do when stored for too long).

3. I'm looking to maybe invest in some quality wine glasses, as I only have the standard-issue college apartment glass cups at the moment. What are some good all-purpose wine glasses (good for both red/white) that I can get? Hoping for something that has a carrying case or something so I can keep them out of harm's way between days I drink wine. A link or pm would be great! Also do I need a decanter (I assume that's for letting the alcohol evaporate when first opened) and where can I get a decent one?

4. Serve chilled? Room temp? Decanted? All of the above? And what kind of food would go with this to try to get a good experience?

I've tried some store-bought wines and never really enjoyed them, but that could quite simply be because I was not taking the right steps to get the most from what I was drinking. Probably the fact that they were cheap Kroger's wines did not help.

Sorry for the essay and overabundance of questions! Most of this can probably be answered by a simple link to a good wine drinker's site that I would otherwise probably never know of. I'm just trying to learn all I can about this before I get out of college this year and I run into a potential situation where I should have developed an appreciation (and hopefully love) for wine. For the same reasoning, I'm also taking a golf class at my school this year and plan on learning, as I'm going into business and know it's a skill I should have.

Thanks in advance if anyone can assist in anything from ^^^^^^^^^ up there.

Venice is also a must see for many and obvious reasons

Siena / Tuscany - great wine region amongst other things. Stay in Siena and take a van tour to Tuscany and hit a few wineries, worked well for us. The Grappa is like fire poison.

Whatever you do buy all your train tickets/transfers ahead of time, along with plane tix and hopper planes (easyjet, etc). Will save you a lot of time and money. Every train we took to get to a new city was early or on time and packed, never would have made half the connections if we didn't already have tix.

I still have a bottle of red from Italy i will find out what winery it was from when I get home later...

Just my own $.02

Storage: sounds about right.

Serve: also right (although I don't think Sangio NEEDS to be decanted, but it couldn't hurt). Check WineDavid39's sig for a decanter link. Although I got mine at Ross (cheap-ass discount store). I think it's really a glass vase, but it's decanter-shaped.

Glasses: Riedel are pricey, but very good. Keep away from drunken college friends!

Food: Pizza or anything acidic (tomato sauce, marinara, etc). Seriously, try the wine first solo. Then try a bite of something with red sauce followed by a sip of wine. It's crazy-good.

Actually a bit cooler than room temp. 65-68F is right for Sangiovese. Put the bottle in the fridge twenty minutes before you plan to open. Then remove and decant. Should be ideal by the time your pizza arrives.

And the glass is the Riedel Riesling/Chianti/Zinfandel glass, glass 15 in all series. In the Vinum series that's 6416/15. (Though as a SuperTuscan, a Bordeaux glass might work as well).

By my calculations, wine.woot grossed over $100,000 on Monday (1935 * 90% * $60), selling over 10,000 bottles. That has to be a record for wine sales in one day, at least for a website.

Wow, what a bunch of questions.

Okay

1. they are fine in the case. Some have said to store them on their side, this is a good idea, but that's if we are talking LOONNNG periods of time before drinking.

2. The wine isn't going to "go bad" as long as it doesn't get cooked (80°-85°F will do that) If you are really concerned, pick up a cheap stacking wire racks from Pier 1, or wherever, and toss a sheet or something over them, you don't have to go and buy a viking cellar or anything.

3. wine glasses. This makes a difference. With this particular wine, it's not like we are talking about a Chateau Pavie St. Emilion 2005 or something, just a nice little Sangio. So you don't need to go buy Riedel Grand Cru glasses. Just something decent. Hell Target has a pretty nice selection of glasses. I know I might get punched in the face by some of the purists, but for something like this, and your situation (limited space, college guy) Get some nice looking large bowled stemless glasses...you can drink cognac out of them too ;-)

The decanter is not for letting the alcohol evaporate, it's more or less to let the wine get some air, and "open up" as we say. You can click on WD's profile footer and order a really cool one, or just buy one when you are out getting your glasses.

4. Don't serve this chilled, but not too hot either. Look your apartment is probably not 65° so just put the bottle (or the full decanter) in the fridge for 10 minutes if the wine doesn't suit you.

Finally, cheap wine doesn't mean bad wine. There are plenty of things out there for less than 10 bucks a bottle that can be 'everyday' drinkers. Find what you like, and enjoy it, but don't be scared to experiment, it's your palette you are trying to please, not anybody elses.

When you do get into the business world and you come across that snooty executive who runs the conversation when you are trying to enjoy a wine, and scoffs at the waiter, other patrons, sommolier, don't do business with that guy, he's an ratholes.

Cheers, and welcome to a much larger world.

Since we are all getting restless with the sellout and no labrat reports yet... this article on ordering wine in a restaurant was posted a while ago, but is worth checking out out if you haven't before. It's hilarious, but has a lot of good info.

The article is written in a PG-13 kind of way, so if you're under 13, don't read it. And stop looking at wine.woot. Mad Dog 20/20 will get you through college. Come back then.

Regular wine should be sideways, so the cork stays wet, and no air gets in. However, Bubblykindofgal (from Mumm Napa) informed us that Champagne should be stored upright, not sideways.

Also, room temp depends on the type of wine:



Try wine at different temps, to see where you like it. YMMV (Your Mileage May Vary).

Good luck and Enjoy!!

Actually, I have purchased several woots including wines, shirts, wootoff items and regular woots. The most memorable was the 2000 Corison Winery Napa Valley Cabernet Savignon. My eyes are still fixed in a rolled-back position after tasting this little lovely. I grabbed it in a wootoff rather than the wine.woot site. It came in smoking hot from the FedEx truck to the point wine was forced past the cork. I contacted the winery just to make sure it was the heat and not the cork causing the leaking. Assured the cork was OK, I hung up somewhat satisfied. But a week later FedEx showed up with two more steaming bottles of red. No leaking this time. Both lots were (licks lips) very good to say the least. The woot price was $59.99 for two bottles if my memory serves me. The Corison website offers case pricing now of $420 or $35 per bottle. I have been secretly skimming the grocery money to buy one of the last cases. I have purchased the Presidential Red from wine.woot as well. (It was pretty ho-hum.) I do not really track all of my woot purchases. Is it supposed to show in my profile or something?

The colored box next to your name on your posts indicates how many woots you've purchased. If you hover your mouse icon over the boxes, it will tell you the number of woots (from all woot sites: Woot, Wine.Woot, Shirt.Woot, & Sellout.Woot).

You must have purchased using another id? Your current color (yellow) indicates only one woot. Black means you are better than anyone else ....


Edit: You can also click on the REPLY at the bottom of the post if you want to have Woot automatically include the quote for you. EDIT allows you to edit your post to correct spelling, etc.

so just using quote inside the brackets does this. And end it like you did.



You can also use the reply to see what woot filters did to the original word(s).

Well, see that little square next to your name there? that tells the world how many woots you've had. And according to the little square, you've only got one woot. Do you use another account perhaps that the purchases were made under? You can always check "your account" to see what purchases you've made - but each *.woot site displays only its own items. And that little square counts across all *.woots

I was commenting how your shelldav account was created Aug 16, 2005 and you had no purchases at the time of your first post -over three years- quite a feat.

The article is written in a PG-13 kind of way, so if you're under 13, don't read it. And stop looking at wine.woot. Mad Dog 20/20 will get you through college. Come back then.


Hilarious. (guess I'll have to stop sniffing the cork.... ;-)

zero, count 'em, zero quality posts...
